Was your old computer running Win 7 or an earlier OS?
Premiere 6 was released in the Windows 2000 days - 2001.
If you really mean Premiere 6 and not Premiere PRO 6 you need to post in http://forums.adobe.com/community/premiere/premierepro_previous
If you have Win7 PRO read below
Win7 Virtual XP http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/
More on Virtual XP http://blogs.zdnet.com/microsoft/?p=5607&tag=col1;post-5607
This is only ONE example of using Virtual XP http://forums.adobe.com/thread/702693
Otherwise, right click the program icon and select WinXP compatibility mode from the option window
If none of the above work, consider Premiere Elements for under $100
Moved to CS4 and Earlier.
Windows xp (I think - sorry a while since it has been on, bought it about 13 years ago before my child was born and I had time to do things).
Thanks for the heads up, had a bit of trouble negotiating the web site to find right forum.
Oh I wish I knew what you meant (not very techie) - what is a CS4.
He just meant that he moved your message from the "current" forum to the "old stuff" forum... which is for CS4 and earlier... and Premiere 6 is a LOT earlier
So... did anything I posted in reply #2 help?
